Smartlipo Q & A

What is Smartlipo?

Smartlipo is a state-of-the-art in-office medical system that combines traditional liposuction with modern laser tissue tightening treatments. Your Smartlipo body sculpting service is performed under local anesthesia, so you’re awake and alert, but won’t be able to feel a thing.

After making a very small incision — sometimes several incisions for larger treatment areas —  your practitioner inserts a thin tube, which contains the powerful Smartlipo laser fiber. During your procedure, the laser fiber sends beams of thermal energy directly into adipose tissue. This step basically liquefies fat cells, so they’re easier to suction away.

But Smartlipo goes a step further. That laser energy heats up skin tissues, forcing them to coagulate. Since skin becomes tighter from the deepest layers, you’re truly left with a smoother, more defined body after a single Smartlipo treatment.

Which areas can be treated with Smartlipo?

At Integrity Aesthetics MD, Dr. Shortz can use innovative Smartlipo treatments to target problem fat just about anywhere on your body. Some of the most popular service areas include:

  • Hips
  • Buttocks
  • Flanks
  • Abdomen
  • Bra line
  • Upper arms
  • Inner thighs

Dr. Shortz personalizes your Smartlipo body sculpting package to your specific needs and concerns, so if you have other areas you’d like treated, talk with him. He can let you know if Smartlipo is the best type of treatment to contour your body.

How long does it take to recover after Smartlipo?

Even though Smartlipo is a minimally invasive procedure, you’re still going to have a short recovery period afterward. It’s normal to experience some slight swelling or bruising, but normally Dr. Shortz allows you to return to most of your normal activities, including work, within a couple of days.

Depending on how quickly you heal, a full recovery and dramatic results can occur in about a week or two. Usually by this time — if not sooner — you can return to all of your normal activities, including strenuous exercise.
